About Nova Risk Candidate & Employee Screening


Nova Risk Management was established in February 1999 with the aim of providing a specialist Candidate & Employee Screening service and addresses the increasing public/media concerns expressed about this important subject. We believe that our best performance will depend upon the development of a long-term relationship from which both parties can benefit. In 2011 Nova Risk Management became part of Staffvetting.com Limited creating one of the UK's leading providers of quality employee background and screening services.

Our staff are experienced in handling the potentially sensitive problems involved in the verification of individuals background. Confidentiality throughout is fully respected.

Security of screening information held during the process is of paramount importance, consequently, our premises are secured to an NSI NACOSS Gold Standard by external and internal CCTV, access control, intruder and fire alarm systems.

Our clients are independently audited by their own accrediting authority these are the BSI, ISOQAR, NSI, SSAIB, NQA and LRQA. Therefore our results are constantly under scrutiny.
